WINTER 2017 NEWSLETTER




Introduction:

First off, the Canada355.ca Staff hopes that everyone had a Merry Christmas, as well as, a safe and Happy Holidays! ..hopefully everyone’s wish lists involved some new upgrades and modification for their trucks! The winter driving season has officially begun, which means the snow has arrived or is starting to, so make sure that you adjust your driving habits to suit the road conditions. Remember whether you think you are a great driver or even a professional race car driver, there are other people on the road that can be the real danger. Also make sure if you’re out partying, that you drink responsibly and always have a designated driver because we would like to see all our members (and their trucks) make it through this winter season.

So with 2017 just beginning, we have a lot in store for our members, including Canada355.ca's Annual Western Canada Super Meet / Annual South Eastern Canada Super Meet, as well as, some new ideas for Canada355.ca apparel pre-orders, also finishing off 2016’s ToTM contest and voting on 2016’s ToTY, which is the most prestigious award our forum can hand out. So the Canada355.ca Staff would like to take this opportunity to once again thank our members, because without you guys & gals this would have not been possible.

It's important to keep the club growing, so let's get out there and collect new members! Whether it's a local Colorado/Canyon that you see driving around or a fellow owner on another site, invite them to the club. Just so you know, we are not done introducing new features to the site yet. We are currently working on some new features, so stay tuned to see what we have up our sleeve for you guys and gals. If you have an idea or suggestion for the site, please feel free to contact one of the staff, because this is your site/club too and you are the largest part of it.

Canada355.ca would like to welcome all of the new members that joined our site in the past few months. The Canada355.ca community currently is continuing to grow.

Be sure to tell us a little bit about yourself and your truck and how you found the site. We're all photo junkies, so if you have some pictures of your truck, post them too. I can assure you that you'll get an overwhelming response from your fellow enthusiasts and lots of welcomes.

Canada355.ca Awards:
The Canada355.ca Award System is a method for member recognition. These awards are given to members that have gone above and beyond on the site in some form or another.  There is a wide variety of awards that can be given to our members. Some are awarded for their success, some for their contributions and commitment to the Canada355.ca community, some for attending and participating in Canada355.ca Super meets and even some for their unfortunate successes. Please click HERE to see the list of Canada355.ca awards, and feel free to let us know if you think yourself or another member qualifies for an award .

Note: We are always looking for new awards to create and a
I will be accepting pre-orders for the 2017 Canada355.ca calendars until the end of the month, just so that I have an idea of how many to order from the printing company.  I would like to place the order the beginning of December, since it will take about a week to receive them from the printing company.  Also, I will be shipping these out via Canada Post and trying my best to beat the holiday rush.  I would like to congratulate everyone featured, as well as, thank everyone for their contributions in making this years calendar a success! None of this would have been possible without you, all of our Canada355.ca members!



These will NOT be sold through the online Canada355.ca store.  I ask that you PM me your order, please make sure to include your full name, complete shipping address, also indicate method of payment.  I accept Paypal & email transfer, please send your payment to <gkolmatycki@hotmail.com> but the purchaser is responsible for all fees related to method of payment.  So if you choose to Paypal me, please send it as a gift. As for any local members, I accept cash if you want to pickup your calendar(s) from me.



You may click HERE for a complete preview of this year's full page Canada355.ca calendar!

$12 for each 11" x 14" full page Canada355.ca 2017 Calendar
$10 shipping via Canada Post + $4 for the large bubble wrap envelope

NOTE: The 2017 Canada355.ca 2017 Calendars will be packaged in a large sealed bubble wrap envelope (best way to ship them, so they don't get damaged) and I got the lowest shipping rate possible via Canada Post with delivery in a couple of days across Canada.



The size of the 2017 Canada355.ca member calendar will be 11" x 14" instead of the old 8-1/2" x 11", since the cost isn't much different.

FALL 2016 NEWSLETTER




Introduction:

With summer at it's end and with winter just around the corner, fall is the time to enjoy that last bit of warm weather. For the lifted members this is one of the best times to go out and find some muddy trails. For the lowered members that put their trucks away for the winter, it's that last time to get out and go for a drive. Whether you're one of those lifted or lowered members, make sure to get out and enjoy these last days of warm weather and take some picture cause it's the perfect time with all the different colors.  Over the past few months the Canada355 community had our two largest super meets. Back in the beginning of June was Canada355's 8th Annual Western Canada Super Meet, with (7) members from Alberta and (1) member from BC making the trip to Radium for a fun filled, but rainy weekend. Later in the middle of July, slade hosted a "Meat n Meet" event at his place, which was a great success with several members in attendance. Thank you to all of the members who attended both of these super meets and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.

We are excited to announce that coming up in the next few months, we will be starting to collect submissions for the upcoming 2017 Canada355.ca Calendar Submission Contest, as well as, possibly conducting another Premium & Lifetime Members Only Contest, so stay tuned. The Canada355.ca community is continuously growing with over 1000 members and more active members everyday.  We would like to take this opportunity to thank our members, because without you guys & gals none of this would have been possible. It is important to keep the club growing, so lets get out there and collect new members! Whether it's a local Colorado/Canyon that you see driving around or a fellow owner on another site, invite them to the club.
